Dr. Janet E. Stout is president of Special Pathogens Laboratory, and research associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Join Dr. Stout for a presentation on the impacts of the COVID-19 shutdown on building water systems. The presentation covers microbial growth & spread, why microbes thrive after a shutdown, impacts of shutdown on water quiality, bacteria that pose a substantial health risk, Assessing risk, and approaches to preventing disease.
All buildings are mandated from the primacy agency to have containment backflow assemblies installed but ever wonder why static fire sprinkler lines have six different types of assemblies to choose from while domestic water lines in a plumbing system only have two?
In this presentation we will learn the evolution of the Detector Check Assembly, what its purpose is, and why some water utilities only specify detector checks on their fire systems while others do not.
We will also examine the different performance characteristics between Type l and Type ll detector checks to see which type help fire designers best to lower the head loss pressures going across their system. *PDH available for NJ and DE licenses
